I did the mag fix on the link above to get rid of some stovepipe issues, and it worked... but...

Now I have another problem. The last round of every mag gets fed with the nose pointed too high due to less support from the mag. It jams itself above the chamber and bends the cartridge severely.

Has anyone else had this issue after doing a mag fix on a MKII-III? Sadly, you can remove metal, but you can never really add metal.

I have merely resorted to placing an empty case at the bottom of each mag to avoid wasting ammo. :(

Did you go to far with the mod? It seems to me that it's time to buy new mags.

It could be... however, it doesn't "look" more extreme than the photos. Its funny how with guns, a fraction of a millimeter of difference can make all the difference in the world.
